When Mario Piccini stepped onto the Torre Mora estate in Sicily in 2016, he fell in love. His family has deep roots and 140 years of winemaking experience in Tuscany, yet Sicily, specifically Mount Etna, filled him with excitement and inspiration. With some luck, he rented, renovated, and then purchased 15 hectares of the Torre Mora farm in Rovittello. The vineyards, farmed organically since 2016, lie 600 to 750 meters above sea level on the northern slopes of Etna. The soil, loose, black volcanic ash, imbues these wines with character, while the winemaking objective is to transmit the terroir without obfuscation.

  • 1,500 cases produced annually

 

 

2023 Torre Mora 'Scalunera' Etna Rosato

"The fabulous 2023 Scalunera Etna Rosato from Torre Mora is a fantastic example of a top rosato from the slopes of what is the world's most active stratovolcano and currently Italy's most exciting wine region. It opens with heady aromas of wild red berry, Mediterranean scrub and dog rose while the tangy, elegant and savory palate features juicy strawberry, crushed raspberry, blood orange and fennel seed before closing on a saline tang. Bright acidity keeps it lifted and energized. Drink through 2026. 93 points" Kerin O'Keefe www.kerinokeefe.com
